LOOK: Cubs fans leave green apples at Harry Caray's grave after World Series win
Cubs fans are paying tribute to their legendary announcer
On Wednesday night, the Chicago Cubs beat the Cleveland Indians to win their first World Series in 108 years. In the hours since, Cubs fans have had sufficient time to do all the celebrating they can muster.
Many Cubs fans have taken it a step further, however, by visiting the resting place of legendary announcer Harry Caray, who passed away in 1998 after 16 seasons at the mic. Caray's iconic glasses remain a fixture in and around Wrigley Field to this day.
Some fans visiting Caray's grave have even left green apples (or other tokens) in celebration of the Cubs' World Series victory:
For those who don't get the green apples, it's a play on when Caray said, "Sure as God made green apples, someday, the Chicago Cubs are going to be in the World Series." Here's the video:
Sure enough, that was the case in 2016.
Perhaps the real surprise isn't that Caray was right -- at some point in time he was bound to be correct in his assertion -- but, rather, that no one has left some Budweiser at his grave. Not yet, at least.
